Knitting Pattern in English for a Slightly Oversized Sweater with a Statement Ribbed Raglan Pattern and a Split Hem in Sizes XS | S | M (L | XL | 2XL) 3XL | 4XL | 5XL.




The sweater is worked top down in one piece with raglan increases, in stockinette stitch and with decorative raglan lines in 2x2 ribbed pattern. First, the collar is worked in 2x2 ribbed pattern. The ribbed pattern of the collar then flows into the raglan lines, the rest of the sweater (body and sleeves) are worked in stockinette stitch in rounds. After separating the sleeves, the body is finished in stockinette stitch with a decorative ribbed pattern at both sides of the sweater. Finally, the decorative ribbing flows into the split hem of the sweater – which is worked as well in 2x2 ribbing. The sleeves are worked in stockinette stitch in rounds with a bunch of decreases for a slight sleeve shaping and finished with cuffs in 2x2 ribbed pattern.

The fit of the sweater is comfortable with a little positive ease of up to 10 cm – which makes it cozy and comfortable to wear. The sleeves are shaped with a few decreases. The high collar is close to the neck, but it still has a comfortable width. The ribbed pattern is the highlight of the simple design – suitable for all days and occasions.
